Are you claiming that Section 1 does not give you the right to make
Are you claiming that when it gives you this right, it gives you this
right without a requirement "that you conspicuously and appropriately
publish on each copy an appropriate copright notice"?
If the answer to both of these questions is no, please explain what you
are saying in more detail.
Note: it's probably worth noting that the definition of "and" being
used is most likely "Together with or along with; in addition to; as
well as. Used to connect words, phrases, or clauses that have the same
grammatical function in a construction."
